Ok. I’ve done some searching and some “fixing” but I still have the same problem.
I can burn a CD/DVD or whatever just fine, but when I try to make a LightScribe label, Nero 7 bombs out on me. In fact, the symptom happens whenever I put media LightScribe side down. Windows thinks and thinks and thinks for MANY minutes, and the drive’s green light just blinks steady on and off. If I have it in the drive when I power on, then Windows takes FOREVER to load.
So anyway, I wait for the light to stop blinking and for Windows to return to “normal” and then load up Nero Cover Designer. I already have my cover saved from when I burned the CD (using some pricey HP branded LightScribe media). I open the cover, and select to burn the LightScribe image. Then The standard Nero window comes up with the “quality” options. I select “Best” and click Print. The status bar clicks along, and then it ejects the disk and says “no media in the drive”. I put it back in, and wait, and then select continue and then get “LightScribe Error: An internal error occurred. Please restart the software application.”
OK. So here is what I did. I grabbed the (latest?) firmware from the link here BCIC, and patched it. I was on BCDC. I grabbed the updated LightScribe support software (22.214.171.124) from LightScribe.com, I check for the Intel Accelerator software (didn’t have it), and I make the few registry changes dealing with AutoRun. Reboot clean, and still the same issue. I’ve tried multiple discs both before and after burning the data onto them, and as soon as I flip it to the LightScribe side, Windows goes SLOW for a while.
This is not a new issue for me, it is just that I am finally getting around to making some bulk photo CDs for family and friends of my sister’s wedding, and I want the discs to look nice.
